A census worker wearing a City of Kent identification badge will visit households between June 17 and July 17 in the Panther Lake annexation area.

The city is required by the state to conduct a census of all homes in Panther Lake, since the area will annex to the city July 1.

The only information required in the census are the names of all individuals residing in a household.

The city needs an accurate count of residents in order to receive a full share of state funds. The census by the city is separate from the U.S. Census.

Panther Lake residents also can provide the census information by calling the Kent Census Hotline at 1-800-635-6594, 24 hours a day. Any information provided will be kept confidential.

Residents should be aware the census will not require them to provide their social-security numbers, credit-card numbers, bank-account information or pay any fees.

Legitimate census workers will have identification badges with a phone number that residents can call if they would like to verify identities of the workers. Residents may contact the annexation message line at 253-856-5799 with questions or concerns.
